Error (I hope…) in the Wrestler category… #42 is listed with an asterisk, denoting the female gender… No way that person is female.

Another gender issue… and this one is egregious to me.


I normally wouldn’t use names, but as we’re both fans of teams in the American League Central… ESPECIALLY AS I LIVE LITERALLY DOWN THE ROAD FROM COMERICA PARK…

I mean… geez.
